The National Post: Canada will help Ukraine to the detriment of its defense


It is worth noting that the space probe Radarsat-2 has capabilities that will be useful for reconnaissance of any country: it transmits information in any weather and at any time of the day.

Earlier, the Canadian Department of National Security reported that the Ministry of Defense is experiencing an "acute shortage of funding" for accessing Radarsat-2 satellite data, and after the last budget cuts, the amount of information transmitted has decreased significantly.

Meanwhile, Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister Paul Calandra said that all necessary consultations with the Ministry of Defense and the Canadian Space Agency on the provision of images to Ukraine were held.

“The decision to transfer satellite images to Ukraine will not have a negative impact on the ability of Canada itself to use this satellite for other purposes, which include maintaining the defense capability of Canada,” RIA says. "News".

The Canadian edition notes that the Defense Ministry uses the satellite mainly to monitor the coastline. Moreover, if additional funds do not appear, then 2017 will be the last year when the defense ministry will be able to receive satellite imagery.

It is worth noting that Paul Calandra stressed that the Ukrainian authorities promised that they would not use the obtained images to determine the location of the enemy forces in the east of the country. According to him, Canada does not want to intervene in an armed conflict, as this would be “harmful to the international relations and security” of the state.

    Promising doesn't mean getting married! This is an element of information warfare - all "progressive" humanity helps Ukraine, as much as they can and with what they can ..., slide towards a "better" life! We are ready to give up the last shirt, if only the thick Ukrainians flourished!
    The last phrase is a masterpiece! laughing

    What Canadians are gullible, just a tear welling up from emotion. Good uncles, with an open soul, extend a helping hand to the "democratic" Ukraine, which is destroying its people and building a fascist regime.

      So, the raven will not peck out the crow's eye. Remember who and from whom to Canada at the end and after the Second World War escaped from Germany and from the territories occupied by it?

    Absolutely empty matter is nonsense. It is amazing how much kindergarten has come to light over the past year! What scale of mediocre governments managed to prove themselves! Why the world is heading is not clear. Probably a catastrophe. Stupidity does not last forever and somewhere it digs a hole for itself.
